In Rwanda, Commonwealth leaders are meeting tonight for the first time in four years. (Subscribe: https://bit.ly/C4_News_Subscribe) During this summit, Boris Johnson will hand over the rotating Commonwealth chairmanship to Rwanda's President, Paul Kagame. Since April, the two leaders have formed a new bond - with the deal announced in April to send asylum seekers arriving in the UK. Officially the British government has concerns about Rwanda's human rights record, but Boris Johnson doesn't - telling me as we left Britain that Rwanda has made "remarkable progress". ----------------------- Follow us on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/Channel4News
